I Met Rose

By Martina - Monday, August 21, 2017

I am talking about my new razor, not Jane the Virgin's Rose, thankfully. I probably wouldn't be here to tell the story otherwise.

Hey, you can see me in the reflection!

Remember that post about my shaving issues? Well, my boyfriend checked out my razors and said that the reason I got cut so often was that they only had two blades, and they were really basic, not flexible and all of that. Following his suggestion, I started checking out razors on Boots' website, but all of them seemed quite pricey, and then I remembered seeing a picture of something called Friction Free Shaving. 

Friction Free Shaving is a subscriptions that allows people to receive four new blades every month, and the prices for the subscription go from 5 to 9 pounds a month. In the first box you get the razor handle and four blades, and the following months you just get the blades (at least that's what I have understood). You can also add a shaving cream to the subscription for an extra 6 pounds.

Now my legs will be less scratched than my boyfriend's desk

The two razors that they offer are the three-bladed Frankie and the six-bladed Rose. I obviously went for the second one because it's prettier because of the six blades and I added the shaving cream for good measure.

I ordered it about a week ago and it landed on my doorstep this morning, just in time for my weekly shaving session.

Let's start by saying that I love the packaging, the colours and the creativity that went into the creation of this product. Second, I really really appreciate the material and weight of the razor handle. It feels expensive and long-lasting. The cream looks pretty as well, and despite containing manuka honey, shea butter and coconut oil its perfume reminds me of peaches, which I love.

I tried everything straightaway (well, right after taking some pictures) and I can say it lived up to the expectations. Shaving proved to be quick and easy, and I didn't even cut myself. The blades cut the hair really close to the skin, so the result should last for a little longer than my previous razors, but the simple fact that I didn't cut myself is enough to make me say I love this combo and I will definitely not cancel my subscription soon.

I will update you at some point, in the meantime, I have got a referral code to share with you in case you decide to #meetRose as well. With this code (K4O1IU) you can get 25% discount on your first order. You are welcome.

Look at all those little blades

  1. This looks so awesome! Interesting about how 2 blades are more likely to cut you, definitely going to be switching mine up to more blades! x

    1. Thanks for your comment, Georgie! Let me know if you notice any difference by changing the number of blades, I'm interested in seeing if that makes things better for everyone or if it's more of a personal preference in the end.
